Being a farm kid from SW Nebraska/NW Kansas and still involved in the family
operation I truly enjoy the Deere Tractor idea.  Most people may not realize
but there is a lot of truth behind it.  Almost all local John Deere and Case
IH dealerships and even the local Chev dealer use a 400 for inventory,
billing, parts id, etc. I acquired an old S/36 to play with from one of the
largest Case IH dealerships in Western Kansas when it was replaced with a
new 400.  Both machines ran without a single problem ever, they ran the
billing, inventory, the whole shabang for three large size stores.  If you
care to learn more about 400's influence in this way I beleive the company
that sets up most of these systems is DIS or Dealer Information Systems. I
hope some of these ideas make it up into IBM.  Somebody needs to light a
fire under the ad managers before they have an excuse to scrap one of the
most stable and efficient systems ever.  I do look forward to watching this
years commercials. The etrade one was the best last year...

Best Wishes to all

Mine;

Camera fade in
Scene:  Corn Field in the middle of Iowa.      Out in the field,   Cold,
Rainy day.    You see a John Deere tractor  harvesting corn.

  Man on the side of the field says  "Hi,   I'm  xxxxxx from John Deere,
Behind me you see one of our products.   We build machines that run day in
day out doing the work that needs to be done.   It doesn't matter if it's
raining or snowing,   hot or cold.    Our machines are depended on to do
the job.  Reliability, and Ruggedness are synonymous  with our name.

Those same attributes are also what we looked for when we picked a server
to run our business.   Something that doesn't break down.  It just does the
job that needs to be done.    24 hours a day,   7 days a week,  365 days a
year.

What server did we pick?     An   iSeries from IBM.

iSeries when your business depends on it.

Camera fades in
Scene:     Race track in Germany.    Around the track comes this blurrrr.
It comes to a stop right in front of the camera.    It's  a Porsche 911
Turbo that is just drips sex.    Painted High Gloss black that looks like
you could just wade into it.

Man on side of race track says "Hi   I'm  xxxxxx from Porsche North
America.    My business is high tech,  High performance,  state of the art
automotive equipment.  This car is  thinks nothing of running for 24 hours
straight at Lemans at peak performance.   We accept nothing less.

When it comes to running our business,   It should come as no surprise that
those are the same qualities that I look for in a computer system.
Camera pans to a Stealth black machine computer.

What server did we pick?     An   iSeries from IBM.

iSeries when your business depends on it.

I have a whole series like this with different companies different aspects
,   same conclusion.
